About Robert Oberst

(Text from

This iconic, bearded Strongman began his Strongman career after trying his hand at a few things, including American Football and working as a bouncer for a nightclub. It was there that a fellow bouncer encouraged him to train and take part in Strongman events and just four months later, he had received his Pro-Card. Strength training and competing is now his full time job.

Robert is the holder of the American record in the Log Lift, and is also famous for his habit of wearing pink whenever possible to represent his mother’s battle with breast cancer. Besides his Strongman achievements, Robert is also known for his phenomenal appetite! “I eat three-and-a-half pounds of meat a day, six cups of rice, a bunch of pasta, and no cheese or dairy. It’s just all high protein, low fat stuff.”

“It’s very strict,” he says. “I get one day off every four weeks where I can eat what I want.” If he keeps competing with the strength and determination we are used to seeing from him, he will continue to smash records and break boundaries.
